Laser aiming devices on defensive pistols can be a great asset in specific circumstances, but they shouldn’t be relied upon as the primary aiming device. Quite often, people who rely on a laser during training and/or practice allow their fundamentals to become lax because they rely on the laser to help them get hits on paper. Generally speaking, shooting with a laser while training for most typical defensive shooting scenarios will slow a shooter down as well. In this video, Rob Pincus and Jay White discuss the issue of laser on defensive pistols.
Rob Pincus is with Chuck Usina at the Ancient City Shooting Range in St. Augustine, Florida to talk about how range owners can find good firearm instructors to teach courses.

Instructor Don Edwards discusses and demonstrates the differences between shooting with a bipod and shooting from an improvised rest. Both methods can dramatically increase deviation control, but the improvised rest techniques are much more versatile and universal.Watch Now >>
